An unknown wounded man in a church. A fatal riding accident. A corpse and a tape measure.
Whether in St Mary Mead or further afield, there is always much wickedness lurking below the surface, should, like Jane Marple, you have the eyes to see it.
Published posthumously, this collection of tales, seven of them featuring Agatha Christie's much loved Miss Marple, plus two stand-alone stories, is a treasure trove.
Never underestimate Miss Marple
'She gives us an insight into human nature that few if any, have surpassed.'
'The acknowledged queen of detectove fiction.'
